"Flax" would put on the brakes for me as a lot of dogs are sensitive to it.

Update on Immunopet. I have been giving this to Jazz for a few weeks now, and I can positively report that this appears to be working for her. I should preface that her issue is environmental, not food allergies. Itching is greatly reduced, almost to the point of being able to say stopped entirely. Dosage recommended was 3 capsules a day to start and then reducing to two then one capsule daily once control is achieved. We are now down to one capsule daily. Hair is growing back on her ears, yay! Most importantly, she is now able to sleep through the entire night without waking constantly to scratch. So far, I'm happy as this appears to be working where everything else failed, including but not limited to antihistamines such as benadryl & zyrtec, and drugs such as atopica, and the much dreaded apoquel, which only worked initially anyway.

lots of science here to look at

but first -- by the time the dog has allergies there is some major work to be done because the entire system
is involved and compromised -- beginning right at the very seat of the immune system -- the gut , the health
of the microbime , the balance of beneficial bacteria and beneficial and functional fungi -- the "myces".

by the time you have symprtoms of allergies you may have to repair breaches causing leaky gut , mucosal lining,
remove over abundant fung, stimulate optimum liver function , address other eliminative routes which do include
liver, kidney , skin, circulatory and lymph .

so product says , per your post , "help maintain a healthy immune system " and "maintain healthy cholesterol levels.
{another topic to discuss later) and "Bovine colostrum helps to support a normal immune system. "

another "hot" topic --- what is colostrum?

Notice each and every ingredients is helpful , suppors or maintains a healthy immune system .

But FIRST YOU NEED TO GET THERE !! -

Nice "housekeeping" but not the foundations for a house that has been well maintained , improved upon and
structually sound t.

This is like slapping on a can of paint , when you have terminte damage, a wet basement , leaky roof , outdated wiring.

First the complete overhaul or renoviation where needed .

How do you get "there" ? You go right to the foundation and that is the gut and that requires
thorough digestion via enzymes which need to be replenished , you need probiotics , which also need to be replenished and nurtured , you need proteolytic enzymes which break down and remove waste .

breaking into two parts .. see next
